Who Are Skimmity Hitchers?

Skimmity Hitchers are a Dorset / West country band formed from the ashes of Who's A'feard. Founders Tatty Smart (vocals, kazoo), Jack Scrumpy (guitar, banjo, vocals, blue steel) and Drum Cheddar (percussion) have recently been joined by Scrumpy & Western troubador Wurzel Thummidge on accordian, and have been terrorising pubs, clubs, festivals and village fetes since summer 2010. Skimmity Hitchers gigs are raucous affairs with a large dollop of humour and audience participation in the mix. Cider, badgers and second-home owners feature strongly in the lyrics, some of which are more family-friendly than others!
